Socialistas Democráticos de América

Es una organización de activistas, no un partido político. Los Socialistas Democráticos de América (DSA) luchan, entre otros objetivos, para promover un seguro de salud para todos, combatir la guerra en Iraq y la guerra contra los pobres. DSA lucha para promover alternativas democráticas contra el poder de las corporaciones transnacionales y tiene un papel central en el avance de las luchas para obtener un país progresista. Esta lucha la mantienen no solamente líderes de prominencia, pero aun más importante, también por el trabajo de los activistas de DSA en las comunidades, los centros de trabajo y en los colegios y universidades.

Los derechistas han construido poderosos movimientos alrededor de grandes ideas y valores fundamentales.Su liderato está motivado y organizado ideologicamente. Los progresistas tenemos que proclamar nuestras grandes ideas y nuestros valores democráticos.

Te invitámos a que tomes un próximo paso. Ponte de pie con nosotros y defiende los valores socialistas, afirma, con nosotros, un futuro progresista para Los Estados Unidos. DSA trabaja para lograr unos objetivos inmediatos, como la paz, seguro de salud universal, y los derechos de los immigrantes, a la misma vez que tratamos de construir un movimiento para el cambio social y económico. Unirse a DSA es contribuir a un movimiento que trabaja para crear coaliciones de grupos que buscan solucionar un problema en particular y educa al público acerca de los peligros que presenta para la democracia un poder corporativo sin barreras.

El creciente poder corporativo y la globalización amenazan a la democrácia aquí en los Estados Unidos y en todo el planeta. Somos parte de un movimiento internacional que busca promover la solidaridad a traves de las fronteras nacionales para promover un nuevo orden más justo y solidario. Los residentes del país capitalista mas poderoso reconocemos que el acto mas grande de solidaridad internacional es crear aqui en los Estados Unidos, un vibrante movimiento multicultural izquierdista. Te invitámos a que te unas a los Socialistas Democráticos de América en este esfuerzo. Será un valeroso esfuerzo para conseguir una vida mejor para cada persona.

Ahora mas que nunca necesitamos organizarnos para defender la democrácia. Para tener éxito, los trabajadores y los pobres, que somos la mayoria, debemos de tener una voz que hable por nosotros. Los Socialistas Democraticos de América es una de esas voces.

STX Entertainment bought the film rights to Bynum's book of the same title. She also served as a consultant and appears in a cameo scene. What was the Free State of Jones? During the Civil War, an armed band of deserters led by Newt Knight, a non-slaveholding white farmer, took to the swamps of southeastern Mississippi and battled against the Confederacy in an uprising popularly known as “The Free State of Jones.” Joining Newt in this rebellion was Rachel, a slave. From their relationship, there developed a controversial mixed-race community that endured long after the Civil War had ended. View the film here for $6 before the discussion. 8 ET/7 CT/6 MT/5 PT.
